Tweets of the day:

@e_russell .@AirCanada has signed an LOI with @BBD_Aircraft for 45 firm CS300s and 30 options. Deliveries begin in 2019.

@e_russell The CS300s will be used to replace the remaining 25 E190s in @AirCanada’s mainline fleet, the Montreal-based carrier says.

@R_Wall @AirCanada says it has signed LOI with @Bombardier to buy 45 CS300 jets +  options for 30 more — with rights to switch to CS100.

@winglets747 Qatar Airways will launch new cabin products at the end of 2016. Qatar will patent the products so other airlines cannot copy (easily).

@winglets747 Qatar received 3m visitors in 2015 & expects this to increase 33% to 4m by 2020. Qatar Airways will obviously grow much much more than 33%.
